Financial Aid and Scholarships

The cost of a college education is a matter of concern for many students and their families.  Regardless of your family's financial circumstances, paying for college will probably require a substantial commitment of your resources over the next several years.  It may surprise you to learn that most full-time undergraduate students at New York University would not be able to pay their educational costs without financial assistance.  These students are able to attend NYU only because they applied for and received financial aid.

While we believe that the primary responsibility for meeting college costs rests with the student and the family, New York University as well as the state and federal governments can help. Although NYU is not able to meet the full need of every student, by combining the various types of funds available we use every method possible to coordinate adequate resources to enable you to invest in a higher education at NYU.

If you believe you will need any amount of financial assistance to attend NYU, we strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid immediately.

Telephone Tips

Office of Financial Aid telephone lines can be quite busy during certain times of the year: (1) from April 1 to May 15, when our prospective freshmen are choosing their college; (2) from July 1 to August 15, when the fall bills have been issued; and (3) during registration.

During the remainder of the year, most calls are answered with little waiting time. To reach a financial aid counselor right away, we suggest that you (1) call Tuesday or Thursday (Mondays are the busiest); (2) call between 9 and 11 a.m. or 3:30 and 5 p.m.; and (3) use NYU Albert to obtain routine information about your award or the status of your financial aid application.

You may also send an email to us or visit our office, instead of phoning.  Our staff will review your message and respond as quickly as possible.

Priority Dates and Deadlines

>>

All students should apply for financial aid every year. Students who miss a financial aid priority deadline are still encouraged to file the FAFSA and will be considered for federal student aid, if eligible, but funds become increasingly limited. Applications for student assistance will continue to be processed as long as we have available funds. Plan in advance and apply at least several weeks before the beginning of the semester for which you need funds. If you have not applied, do so immediately. Remember, to meet the specified deadline your application, with all necessary signatures, must be received and validated by the processor and released to NYU by the date shown below for priority consideration.

UPDATE (4/4/2014):  Freshmen applicants to Washington Square must complete both the CSS Profile and the FAFSA by our deadlines in order to be considered for NYU Scholarship.  Late CSS Profile applications will not be accepted for scholarship consideration.  The FAFSA can be filed at any time to be reviewed for federal aid eligibility.
JULY  
20 Priority deadline to submit the Summer Financial Aid Application for NYU Undergraduate Students (to apply for additional federal aid, state aid, and private loans), and for NYU Graduate Students (to apply for additional federal aid and private loans).
